So, at long last, the High Street is opening it's shops. We still have to social distance and be prepared to wait in queues, but it's a beginning. How many of you are waiting until the crowds die down? How many of you are still anxious about going into a shop, or even a busy High Street again?
It's only natural if this is the case. After all, Covid-19 is still here, it's still a threat and it's still a worry. Yes, the number of affected people has reduced, as have the number of deaths, but it's still here. So, how are you going to cope?
If you think of something too much it can start to become an obsession. Then the obsession can become a fear, then the fear makes you feel restrictive and the obsession widens. Put simply, overthinking is not a good idea. Face the facts.
Rules are in place so follow them: Wash your hands. Be mindful of keeping the 2 metre distance when out. Wash you hands. Don't touch anything if you don't need to. Wash your hands. Wear a mask when shopping if you can. Wash you hands. Wipe down anything you buy with a disinfectant gel where possible. Wash your hands. One thing is for sure, when we come out of this everybody will be thinking of personal hygiene much more than they ever did before, and that's not a bad thing.
